I confirmed that the bilge pump would run if turned on manually via the "bilge 3" switch at the panel, but that did not stop the intermittent alarm, which tended to increase in frequency the longer we motored in rough seas.

Skipping ahead, we are back home in the snowy NW after a long trip as usual. Long, but everything went really smoothly with no delays or disruptions and we are grateful for that.

We spent our last week reprising our favorite spots and revisiting some places we haven't been for a long time.

Reprovisioned and found cream at the Riteway in Fat Hogs Bay. My wife bought 3 pints. We drank a lot of coffee on this trip - put 5 pounds of stovetop ground Brazilian Peaberry through the Grosch stovetop expresso maker.

We spent a night at Marina Cay (first time since pre-Irma) and snorkeled Diamond Reef a few more times.

Thank goodness we passed on Lobster Fest - from the stories we heard that would have been waaaay too much for us.

We had brunch at Nova and met a nice couple that just brought their Lagoon 450 to the BVI to put in charter. Lots of common ground and we hope to stay in touch.

We did some free diving at the sunken Willy T - I had fun diving down to the crows nest. I think Webedivin takes their AIDA classes here, unfortunately the next one was just past our return.

On all previous 3+ week trips there has been a reason to return to the base partway through. This time we had no major problems and never docked from beginning to end of cruise. We used about 90% of our 200 gallons of water. About 50% of our 93 (?) gallons of fuel.

Sounds like a fantastic trip. How's our dock looking?

I'm not sure I completely know which is yours. There's a concrete dock past the dinghy line and dive buoys towards the passage that is usually my turn-around-point. Fairly flat. Is that it? Or toward where the Boston Whalers are docked?

It looked fine. I wish I would have taken some pictures. Hope you find it as expected!
